At the top of the form you will find a ‘Field for Update / Correction’ in which you must tick ‘Mobile’, following which you must enter your Aadhaar number in the space provided.
In the section that requests for your mobile number, enter your registered mobile number that you wish to link to your Aadhaar Card . It is recommended that you also attach a photocopy of an ID document and ensure that your Aadhaar number is mentioned in said document/s. Once you have entered the necessary details, you will have to sign the form or provide a thumbprint after which you may send the application through post at the address provided below.
Address 1: Box No.10, Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh – 480001.
Address 2: UIDAI Post Box No.99, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad – 500034.
Once the form has been sent, you will have to wait for a few days as the authorities will take some time to cross verify your identity. Once they have carried out the necessary verification procedures, you will receive a confirmation message that your registered mobile number has been successfully linked with your Aadhaar Card.
